Ponteland Junior Head - 24 March 2018

This event was originally run by Ponteland High School Rowing Club, but has now been taken under the wing of Tyne Amateur Rowing Club. It happens each year in mid to late March, with the exact date depending on tides. And because of tides we tend to be on the same day as a big race on the Thames in London.

The 2018 event

This year we run on Saturday 24 March, the same day as the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Races on the Thames in London. We hope to finish early enough to come back in to the clubhouse and watch them on TV in the warmth! The competition documents are now downloadable below. 

BROE is now closed for new entries and all entries have now been acceted formally (except the one with placeholders). We have 124 live entries. We are now asking for payment by Thursday 22 March at the latest. You can still make subs up to 50% of the crews until the competition day.

We will have a start order out by Tuesday morning, 20 March, if not tonight. If you have any doubtful crews please let me know now and please, please don't scratch at the last minute unnecessarily.
